FOOTBALL - Jordan Adams named new Pershore Town captain after Layton departure

JORDAN Adams will take up the Pershore Town captaincy next season following the departure of former skipper Kirk Layton.

Adams made 41 appearances last season as Pershore won the Hellenic League Division One title.

And the defender’s performances will see him lead the team onto the pitch next term after former captain Layton and Logan Stoddart left the club.

Adams said: “I feel massively honoured to be given the opportunity to captain such a fantastic football club.

“I hope we can continue the success the club has had in the past 18 months under Lewis [Marston] and the new management team.

“I’m looking forward to leading the team as it returns to step five football after so many years.”

Plums boss, Lewis Marston, added; “Jordan is someone who I know away from football and for everyone who knows him on or off the field they are aware of how much of a leader he is.

“He is someone who myself and the management team can trust along with being a hugely popular face in the changing room which is massive for all departments going into pre-season.

“Losing Kirk felt like a bit of a blow at first, the last thing I wanted going into a new season was to lose last season’s captain.

“But I feel with Jordan we have landed on our feet with a perfect replacement.”
